Night Six of the Premier League

We have reached the sixth round of the Premier League, with a giant match in front of us.

Motorpoint Arena in Nottingham is the place to be tonight. The Premier League will have a lot of treats for us tonight, among other we have Raymond van Barnevel against Gary Anderson. The match between the two former world champions will hopefully be fantastic.

“I scraped the point last week and I’ve had no consistency in the Premier League so far,” admitted Anderson. “I’ve had a good couple of weeks and I want to keep that going because there’s still a long way to go.

We will also see Peter Wright trying to refind the form against Michael Smith. Shockingly Snakebite was demolished last week by Mensur Suljovic. It is also worth to mention, that Michael Smith lost his first match of this seasons Premier League last week against Rob Cross. An interesting match.

Besides the matches above, we also have Mensur Suljovic against Rob Cross, Gerwyn Price against Michael van Gerwen and last but not least, we have a repeat of the World Grand Prix Final in 2017 with Simon Whitlock against Daryl Gurney.

World Cup of Darts

PDC Nordic & Baltic

Selection procedure – World Cup of Darts.

Due to yearly variations in PDCNB tournament schedules and individual country selection deadlines it has been decided, after consultation with the PDC, to implement a uniform annual cut-off date for all Nordic and Baltic countries with regards to World Cup of Darts player selection.

The annual Cut-off date has been set as the 30th April.

The selection process used to determine which players will be invited to represent their country (if and when their country is chosen to be part of the tournament) is as follows:

  1. Highest placed PDC Tour Card Holders* and/or PDPA associate Members** on PDC Order of Merit.
  2. Highest placed PDC Tour Card Holders* and/or PDPA associate Members** on PDC European Tour Order of Merit.
  3. Highest placed non PDPA members on PDC or PDC European Tour Order of Merit.
  4. Players with highest total amount of points accumulated from competing in at least 6 PDCNB & Euro Tour events combined during previous 12 months (1st May & 30th April),

* Full PDPA Member
** Q-School entrants that did not achieve full tour status.

The selection process is built on preserving the integrity of the tournaments organised by the PDC and PDC Nordic & Baltic. Not only does it prioritise and reward players already committed to the PDC and PDPA, it also rewards players that have shown sustained commitment to the PDC Nordic & Baltic tour but as yet have not entered Q-School. The PDCNB tour is an excellent gateway to the world of professional Darts for all Nordic and Baltic players.

Premier League is back – The snow will not be a problem

We have reached the sixth night of the Premier League. This time in Leeds.

Beacuse of the cancellation last week, we still find Gerwyn Price and Daryl Gurney on the eliminationseats.

The two of them really needs points at this point of the tournament.

Daryl Gurney will face the new UK Open champion, Gary Anderson. It seems like a big task for Daryl Gurney, who did not look confident in his match against Kim Huybrechts in the UK Open.

Gerwyn Price had an acceptable UK Open, so maybe he will give Barney a great fight for the two points.


The most interesting match of the night is undoubtely the match between Rob Cross and Michael Smith. Smith has not last a match yet in this years Premier League, but Rob Cross looks like a man, who was refound the good form.

Besides the matches above we will also see Michael van Gerwen against the great surprise Simon Whitlock and last but not least we have Peter Wright against Mensur Suljovic.

Gary Anderson finally won the UK Open

Gary Anderson is the new UK Open champion, for the first time ever.

Before the UK Open of 2018, Gary Anderson had never won it. That did change yesterday evening, when he beat Corey Cadby 11-7.

“It’s fantastic for me,” said Anderson to ITV Sports. “I’ve come here to win the tournament and managed to do it, and it’s great.

“I played well on Friday and Saturday and I was very happy with my game but I struggled in the last three games. My scoring wasn’t there but my doubles went in when I needed them to.

“In the last three games I’ve been lucky – it’s been a struggle. Corey is good and I’ve got a lot of time for him, he’s a class act.

“I knew exactly what to expect and he’s going to be about for a long, long time. It’s getting harder every year with all the youngsters coming through and they’ll take it in their stride.”

The reporter from ITV Sports also asked Gary Anderson about if Gary actually considered retirement. Then Gary gave quite a mysterious answer, but let’s hope we will see a lot to him over the next couple of years.

UK Open starts today – already seven men short

It’s time for one of the big ones, it’s time for UK Open. 

UK Open starts today and it will be interesting to see, if Peter Wright can defend his title from last year. The only major he has ever won.

Also for the first time ever, we will not see retired Phil Taylor participate in the tournament, luckily some of the other old guys will participate. Most interesting is the fact that we will see former World Champion John Part take part in the tournament. He have not participated in the tournament since 2015.

Besides that we can also look forward to see Paul Nicholson and Terry Jenkins.

And of course we have all the other big guys, such as Michael van Gerwen, Raymond van Barneveld, Adrian Lewis and Stephen Bunting.

Unfortunately the tournament is already seven men short because of all the snow in the southern England. The men we are missing are:

Rene Berndt
Andrew Davidson
John Goldie
Maik Langendorf
Mick McGowan
William O’Connor
Scott Robertson

But no worries, we can expect a great tournament anyway.
